Summary
"Sports law is an ever-growing field that requires constant updates, analyses, and research. Rules of the Game: Sports Law provides the most up-to-date information on hot-button issues such as crime in sports (including sexual harassment and assault both on college campuses and in private homes), sports litigation (especially pertaining to concussions), and publicity, privacy,and defamation rights of the athlete. Rules of the Game is an engaging and informative book written by one of the leading authorities in the field. Michael E. Jones offers students the basics - such as how contracts are formed, the rights of athletes, labor laws, the NCAA, and copyright and trademark laws - but also covers much more. Jones discusses essential topics ranging from gender equity in sports to performance-enhancing drugs and testing. International competition, sports liability, and the major players in the sports agency field are also fully reviewed. Appendixes offer valuable resources, including a sample drug testing consent form, a standard player contract from the NFL, and a National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) representation contract. With key words and discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book is a comprehensive yet highly readable text for both undergraduate and graduate students"--Unedited summary from book cover
